JUNE BRIDE SPECIAL: THE WEDDING GOWN


THE BALLGOWN
Perfect for Fairy Tale Inspired Weddings
The Silhouette pairs a fitted bodice with a full skirt
The cut of this wedding dress allows you to experiment with different necklines and sleeve lengths

THE BALLGOWN
Having trains are perfect for ballgown wedding dresses. Whether it is the theatrical look of a Cathedral Train or a subdued brush length train.
Ideal for Pear Shaped and Slender Brides.

THE BALLGOWN
If you are on the short side, this type of a gown might not be good as there is not enough height to balance the size of the skirt.

THE A LINE/PRINCESS CUT
This type has a fitted bodice and flows to the ground.
Classic and simple, making it perfect for any venue.

THE A LINE/PRINCESS CUT
This cut gives you many fabric options. Charmeuse Silk will be ideal as it allows the dress to hang naturally, creating a soft feminine silhouette.
If you prefer a more structured silhouette silks like Peau de Soie will be a good choice.

THE A LINE PRINCESS CUT
This is flattering on almost all body types.
The long lines creates an illusion of height, slims down a rounded figure.
The full skirt can hide a larger lower body or make a narrow frame look curvier.

THE MERMAID
This cut hugs the body from the chest to the knee and flares to the hem.
This is perhaps the sexiest of all the cuts and its imperative that you are comfortable in your own skin to pull of a wedding dress that has this cut.
This is perfect for slender brides whether you are short or tall. :)

THE SHEATH/COLUMN
This cut flows straight down from the neckline to the hem.
It hugs the body, shows all your curves.
Because of the simplicity of the cut, you can get away with embellishments.

THE SHEATH/COLUMN
Major factor to consider is the fabric. If you want the slip dress effect go for light silks and satins.
Heavier fabrics like damask, Peau de Soie can maintain shape.
This is best worn by slender brides and will help petite brides look taller.
Bear in mind that this cut does not have room for concealing flaws.
A constructed Column Wedding gown may define the contours of your body but a slip dress style can be very unforgiving.

THE EMPIRE
This cut is defined by a raised waistline and is normally paired with a square neckline.
Choose lighter fabrics as it allows movement and flow from the waistline.
Fabric of choice is Silk Chiffon or Lace.
This cut is perfect for concealing a long torso, short legs or a pear shaped figure.

If there is but 1 thing that creates so much stress on a Bride when planning her wedding (aside from the guest list from her mom and her in-laws - hehehe), it would be finding the Ultimate Wedding Gown; the dress that will separate her from everyone else on her big day. The dress that the Bride hopes will make everyone look at her in awe and say, 'She is one Beautiful Bride!'
